I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of great, smart, passionate people that are doing their very best to make products that help customers alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life.

Cons

Culturally slow to change and fully embrace innovation. Too concerned with what the global regulatory bodies will think and how they will react.

    I have been working at Medtronic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, opportunity for professional development, promotion opportunity, looks great on a resume

    Cons

    Management is frustrating, ideas are new strategies are forces upon us without consideration of how much they affect us and if the end result is worth the additional hours. Very political.

    Advice to Management

    The best companies listen to the advice of their bottom level employees. When implementing big changes it would be a good idea to have insight from high potential employees in the role of how this change would affect our work day.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Medtronic as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leader in medical device industry, profile margin is high. Lots of training to new employees. Company culture is good in general, emphasize on R&D (annual sci and tech conference), good relationship to hospitals and academia.

    Cons

    Stagnant US market force it shifts efforts to emerging markets, China, India, ... Plus the 2.3% sale tax in medical devices starting this year, large RIFs (reduction in workforce) are happened in recent years. High level executives mentioned couple times in the employee meeting that Medtronic is a public company. They seem pay attention to short-term stock values more than long-term company growth. No wonder one of the senior employee (work there for over 20 yrs) called Medtronic as a sinking boat.

    Advice to Management

    look into long-term direction of company, do not work only to please wall street.
